☎❀ Calling all fellow
Londoners!@traid-a UK clothes reuse charity
-revealed in their new study that 23% of
London's clothes are unworn. That's 123
million items πŸ‘’πŸ‘’
β€’β€’β€’
πŸ†“ If you have clothes you don't wear, TRAID
offers *free* home collections picking up
clothes you no longer need direct from your
door, direct to the charity! Passing on our
unworn clothes to TRAID also helps fund their projects to improve conditions in the supply
chains making our clothes. www.traid.org.uk/23collect
β€’β€’β€’
Today is the 3rd anniversary of the UN
sustainable Development Goals. TRAID's study shows 22% of Londoners throw their
clothes in the bin after clearing out their
closet. Passing on our clothes means
supporting UN SDG 12: Responsible
consumption and production. Yay! 🌎

W😍W! πŸ’₯ Julia Cohen $ @betsywestnyc πŸ’₯
directors of the incredibly Crucial @RBGmovie
-a documentary about πŸ‘© Supreme Court
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg-are my first
#FeministFilmmakerFriday πŸŽ₯❀ appreciation
post. β€’β€’β€’
I was *completely * captivated by Julie &
Betsy's documentary, it couldn't have come at
a more important time. Like many of you, I
heard about Justice RBG in recent years, as
the internet catapulted her to feminist pop
culture icon. Learning more about Justice
RBG's life, career (25 years as a supreme
court Justice) and fierce advocacy for equality
was such a thrilling joy. Grateful to these
filmmakers for getting her story out to the
world! πŸ’„πŸŒŽ

πŸŠβ™€οΈβš°πŸ’¦ I recently met Olympic
Swimmer Yusra Mardini, from Syria who
represented the first-ever Refugee Olympic
Team in the Rio 2016 Olympics. βœŠπŸ†
β€’β€’β€’
Yusra has an Incredible story: she fled the ware
in Syria with her sister, and was part of a
group trying to reach Greece by boat. when
the motor failed, Yusra, her sister and two
others swam in open water for more than
three hours to stop their dinghy from
Capsizing, saving the lives of 20 people. She is
now the youngest ever UNHCR @refugees
Goodwill Ambassador, and you can all read
her incredible story in her autobiography,
Butterfly. β€’β€’β€’
it was so inspiring to meet you @mardiniysra
and I wish you all the best training for 2020!

πŸ’ͺ πŸ’ͺ πŸ’ͺ I am honoured to

violence against girls and women. πŸ’ΈπŸ’•
β€’β€’β€’
Thank you to the panel: Nasn

β˜€πŸ’¦βœ I am excited to
announce that July/August's pick for
@oursharedshelf is our first poet, @rupikaur_,
and her book of poems Milk and Honey 🍯. Rupi Kaur is an Indian-born, Canadian-raised
poet and artist. She chooses not to use upper
case letters or punctuation in her poems as an
ode to her native language, Punjabi. She
travels the world, including recently to her
native country India, performing her poems
and drawing crowds of hundreds. Both of her
books, Milk and Honey and The Sun and Her
Flowers, have made the New York Times
bestseller list, which for a poet, is astonishing. β€’ β€’ β€’
Over my lifetime, I have fallen in and out of
love with poetry. Performing poems was what
got me into acting (I had a primary school
teacher that made everyone learn one a week,
and eventually I won a poetry recital
Competition!) In secondary school and at
university, I loved deciphering the codes of
poems in class discussion, but I honestly
wondered if poetry would continue to feature
in my life outside of an academic context. β€’ β€’ β€’
Enter poets like@hollipoetry,
@SabrinaMahfouz and Rupi Kaur_I
demolished whole books in single sittings.
Unlike poems I have often spent weeks
unraveling, Rupi's poems are not designed to
obscure meaning or entertain too much
ambiguity-they hit you like punches to the
stomach. They are immediate, visceral and
not easily digested. I am loathe to say Rupi
has made poetry "accessible" because while
this is the truth (Rupi's poems and illustrations
fit well into those famously square shaped
Instagram frames), there is nothing easy or accessible about what Rupi chooses to talk
about. In fact, the topics she chooses, are
audacious. β€’ β€’ β€’
Here is a 25-year-old girl saying the
unsayable... to hundreds of thousands of
people: that she has been raped, that at times
She has been abused, that she bleeds. And sin
of all sins... She actually likes the hair that
grows on her body. Yes. She actually thinks it
is beautiful. And that she is beautiful as God
made her-what a transgression. That her
body is her home and nobody else's. β€’ β€’ β€’
